ST. LOUIS – A widow has filed suit against several companies over the mesothelioma-related death of her husband.
Carolyn D. Calendo filed a complaint on Jan. 9 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against General Electric Co., CBS Corp., et al. alleging negligence and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that at various times during the life of her deceased spouse, Thomas A. Calendo, he was exposed to and inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers emanating from certain products manufactured, sold, distributed or installed by defendants. The suit states that on or about Oct. 6, 2017, the decedent first became aware that he developed mesothelioma, an asbestos-induced disease, and that the disease was wrongfully caused. He died on Jan. 1, 2018, the suit states.
The plaintiff holds General Electric Co., et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide adequate warnings and instructions concerning the dangers of working with or around products containing asbestos fibers.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks punitive damages, costs and any further relief as the court deemed proper and just. She is represented by Andrew A. O'Brien, Christopher J. Thoron, Bartholomew J. Baumstark, Gerald J. FitzGerald and Adam J. Reynolds of O'Brien Law Firm PC in St. Louis.
